Jeff Drock has worked in the industry for nearly 20 years. Originally, Jeff played college tennis at the University of North Florida where was inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame! Jeff has worked as the Director of Sport Science at the Rick Macci Tennis Academy in Boca Raton, Florida and in 2009, Jeff founded the Home Fitness Professionals Association that provides in-home and mobile fitness training business skills. 

In our chat, we talk about the following:

  • The formidable Coco Gauff and her athleticism as a young teenager
  • How Jeff got into specialising in tennis footwork and movement and how he actively improves tennis players’ movement
  • Jeff shares his advice for young athletes and how they can improve their own fitness from various resources online

Hope you enjoy it!
